Harp Teachers    

Klassisk harpe

Classical harps are larger and use pedals to change the half tones (sharps and flats.)  If you are interested in playing a classical harp, it is better to start with a classical teacher, even if you start on a smaller folk/lever harp.

Below are all the classical teachers we have in Norway.

Folk harps are smaller instruments with from 20 to 38 strings.  They use levers to change the half tones  (sharps and flats.)  They are usually used in folk music or for a starting place for classical harpists. 

 

There are several teachers in Norway and internationally who specialize in Norwegian folk music on the harp.
